Muay Thai

Known as the "art of eight limbs," Muay Thai engages fists, knees and so much more. The fighting sport originated in Thailand, where it's immensely popular and has gained momentum across the globe for its melding of martial arts and boxing moves. But, Muay Thai isn't traditionally a sport in which women can participate. In this short directed by Guangli Zhu, Jackielou Butan, a young, female fighter, challenges this tradition and pursues her dream. "People will comment, 'Oh, she's good, for a girl,'" Butan tells, adding, "For my opinion, you're good no matter what. It doesn't matter if you're a female or a male."
